Gelid is a Hong Kong based company that was founded in 2008 which designs and manufactures packaging, thermal solutions, CPU coolers and other computer hardware. Gelid provides consumers with innovative, virtually silent, high-performing products that feature a unique design. Looking at their products it is easy to instantly notice they definitely do have a unique design and are easy to tell apart from those products of other manufacturers. As with most companies this day and age, Gelid has a good amount of products aimed directly at gamers, more specifically, PC Gamers. PC Gaming was once said to be a on a very serious decline and was not supposed to be as big as it is today but thanks to companies like Gelid realizing how important and serious PC gaming is, PC Gamers have prevailed and now count for a good portion of PC hardware sales.
Today I will be taking a look at one of Gelid’s coolers that is designed to be near silent while offering great performance. The Rev. 3 Tranquillo features 4 heatpipes and is designed to allow for the mounting of two fans in a push/pull configuration so users can get the most performance out of it as possible. The Rev. 3 Tranquillo is compatible with a wide range of both AMD and Intel sockets which should allow most users to take advantage of its cooling performance.
